Watercolor and Intaglio Etching

"White Fence" is a line and aquatint etching which has been hand painted with watercolor. The plate size is 15" x 21". This print is an Artist's Proof, titled and signed in pencil and is printed on Rives BFK, a 100% rag etching paper from France.

This plate initially printed much lighter and the aquatint wore down rather quickly. I reworked the plate, etching the aquatinted shadows again, giving it more contrast than the first state.

White Fence was created by drawing with a needle on a copper plate coated with an acid resistant ground, thus exposing copper.  Using line etching and aquatint techniques, the copper plate is etched with acid. After hand inking and wiping, an etching press is used to emboss the image into a sheet of damp paper. Every print of White Fence is individually inked, printed, and when dry, hand painted with watercolor.
